  • Galactic Command Rank is resetting to 0 for all characters.
  • The Achievements for earning Command Rank 300 on Classes will become Feats of Strength with Onslaught's launch.
  • Numerous currencies are being converted to credits at a low rate. Command Point Consumables, Alliance Recon Data, Command Tokens, Command Gear Pieces, and Unassembled Components.
  • All utilities will be reset on launch day so be sure to spend your points when you login.
  • All set bonuses are now on item shells instead of armorings, this change is retroactive.
  • Conquest Guild Targets for this week's Conquest will be judged against the NEW values, not the existing ones. You will also receive NEW Guild rewards for completing them. This has no effect on Personal Conquests.
  • No reason to stockpile Command Crates either as they will not convert into Renown crates and Command Tokens will become credits.
  • All Legacy Perks for GC will now affect Renown. The Commanding Legacy Perk has been adjusted, it no longer stacks but is a 25% increase for Renown gain across the Legacy.

Thanks all!

Umm, the Conquest thing should've been announced sooner. I'm willing to bet there's a lot of Guilds like mine who've invaded large yield but won't be able to make 5 Million Conquest Points.

So in other words, if we now have our gear in legacy gear pieces they will have no set bonus?

Does your statement only apply to the guild's total score or also the individual member's contributions? AKA do we have to contribute 15k or 50k per character to be eligible for the guild's conquest reward?
My understanding is that you become eligible for the Guild Reward when you complete your personal reward, meaning that would track against you completing your 15K number.

There has been no official forum-based answer to this and I know I'm not the only one looking for confirmation on this.
I missed those above, good catch. Masterwork and Monumental Crystals will both be going away / converted to credits. The intention is that those vendors on Ossus will change to selling their items for credits. There is a known issue at launch where they are still requiring the currency which we will fix in our next patch.

Once again, SMALL guilds get the royal screw over. There's no way my guild will be able to meet "next week's conquest goal." Small guilds will be truly decimated, and for what? Just so large guilds can gain members? Wrong on so many levels.

What are the new guild conquest goals?

It would have been nice for once if they would provide complete information, but hey this is BioWare, they don't do that.

If this is accurate then it's a very disturbing piece of news, especially as the conquest pane for this week is continuing to show the target score as 1,130,000. If we had known this, we wouldn't have aimed for a large invasion this week. We are a smallish guild and the likelihood of getting another 4 million points over the weekend is small.

Can the confusion about Alliance crates be cleared up please? Will these be going away in 6.0 or will we still be able to earn them and turn them in with the Alliance specialists and Star Fortress companions?

Thanks for the clarification, that's a relief. Five million points will take some effort but should be doable for my guild.

Nice to know that it hasn't even launched yet and has preordained bugs that are being ignored until later.

Sorry eric but it's frankly ridiculous and insulting that you didn't care to make it clearly known that this week's conquest will only be judged against the new values, not the ones shown in game, AFTER everyone has picked this week's invasion targets. My medium yield guild could have gotten small if this was more clearly communicated, now everyone's efforts this week are wasted because we weren't told to switch to small.

It's bad enough that you're ruining gearing, shoving more RNG into everything and increasing the grind, but this is just a slap in the face to small guilds.
May the force ever serve you.
